Parent Conversations:  Celebrating Gifted Discovery

Parenting gifted learners is undoubtedly a challenge.  So how do we frame and support the unique qualities that make up our gifted children? In this valuable community of parents many of you are making important discoveries about how to be parents of greater understanding and appreciation.   We welcome you to share your hard earned knowledge and stories of realization. Please join us to share your story, or just listen and learn.  For this conversation there will be no advance resources, just the following questions to consider:  

 What has giftedness through the eyes of your child been like?  

What has giftedness from your parenting point of view been like?  

What's involved in supporting the needs of your child's unique learning profile?  

What does success mean for your family?  

What has surprised you about this journey?

What do you wish you knew sooner?  What would you like other parents to know?   

What have been your most valued take-aways from your parenting journey so far?

We aspire to welcome everyone and address gifted topics that are accessible and relevant to busy parents.  Join us to listen, participate, collect resources, share ideas and create community that supports and understands gifted parenting. Topic suggestions welcome and will change each session, and resources will be provided to inform and fuel the conversation.  It's OK if you don't have time to read, just join us for inspiring conversation with other gifted parents and Katherine Peterson, parent,  CGCC Board Member / Facilitator.   Other CGCC Board Members including Carole Jones, CGCC President, and Aileen Kelleher, LCSW, CGCC Board Member and Professional Member will join as they are able. Please feel free to reach out to Katherine Peterson, CGCC Board Member & Parent Discussion Facilitator with questions or ideas.   We will cap the group at 10 participants, so please be sure to sign up to save your place, and cancel if you're unable to attend.
